LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Louisville men's basketball's Luke Hancock completed his time at the State Farm College 3-Point Championship with a score of nine at Moody Coliseum in Dallas on Thursday night.
Hancock connected on three 3-pointers at the third and fourth racks and then hit two, including the money ball, at his final stop, but was unable to advance past the first round.
The 2013 Final Four Most Outstanding Player knocked down 131 3-pointers through his two seasons at Louisville. He hit 63 treys last season, including six during the NCAA Tournament, and 68 this year. Over his last 15 games, Hancock has connected on 36-of-90 attempts - or 40 percent of his shots from long range.
The Cardinals, in total, have sent four other student-athletes to the event. Kenny Payne was the only Louisville player to compete in the 3-point competition, which he did in 1989, while Everick Sullivan (1992), Alvin Sims (1997), and Marques Maybin (2001) participated in the dunk competition.
